Best things to do and see in Bilbao

One of the most iconic locations in Bilbao, Spain is the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. This modern and contemporary art museum is found along the Nervión River and includes two high-end restaurants for visitors who are hungry after a day of walking the exhibits. There is plenty of beauty to be seen outside the museum, as the architecture of Plaza Nueva or Casco Viejo could be an exhibit in itself. You can enjoy a glass of sangria in the plaza or explore the historical district of Casco Viejo, which is built around the original seven streets of the city. Another unique shopping opportunity is El Ensanche district, built around Plaza Moyua and follows the southern bank of the Nervión River. If you’re hoping to take in the entire city from above, a quick funicular ride to the peak of Mount Artxanda will provide a panoramic view of the skyline.
